Personal Water Craft (PWC)
The watercraft is considered the most exciting and fun powerboat activity in the world.
Tackling curves and ripples of water riding your bike will test your biceps but will charge you with adrenaline.
HOW IT WORKS
Technically, the watercraft is a sport craft, less than four meters long.
It’s also called with the name of the manufacturers (WaveRunner, Jet Ski, or Sea-Doo) or of the patents for other means (aquabike or aquascooter).
It’s also used to practice flyboard (which we talked about here).
You can rent it, or use it to visit places that can only, or more easily, be reached, from the coast, either independently or by taking part in guided excursions.
The watercraft can be two or three seats.
WHEN and WHERE to GO
It’s possible to use the jet ski wherever there’s a lake or the sea, of course if it’s allowed by local regulations and in compliance with the rules for driving sport boats.
